How to Heal a Broken Heart
Mary Yoder's life couldn't get much better. She's engaged to be married, spring is in the air, and love is in her heart as she looks forward to the fall wedding she's always dreamed of. Six months later on a crisp November morning, Mary awakens in a lovely little valley near the Adirondack Mountains on what was to be her wedding day, heartbroken and alone. Her sister, Betsy, tries to protect Mary from the romantic overtures of Stephen Overholt, a longtime Amish bachelor. Betsy is considering jumping the fence for the Englisha world and encourages Mary to follow. Meanwhile, Mrs. Gabert, an elderly Englisha grandmother, launches her own matchmaking effort on behalf of her grandson Willard, who is a missionary to Kenya and nursing his own broken heart. She hopes that Willard and Mary can find comfort in one another despite the fact they come from two different worlds. As Mary struggles to accept the Lord's will, she must determine whether or not one of her potential suitors can give her the future that was denied her.
